GE Aviation annually support an established competition involving approximately 100 primary schools in Gloucestershire. Students need to construct an engineering solution to a specified problem using K’nex. Winning teams from each school are brought together to compete in the K’nex Challenge grand final. Schools and students are covert their place within this very well established competition.
GE apprentices are key to the programme. They manage many aspects of the programme and support the workshops and final competition. In doing so they have the opportunity to enhance their communication, team work and project management skills.
